Boy bands have been around for decades, and actually started out as a cappella quartets, but for this post we’re going to focus on boy bands from the early ’80s to the present day. Whether they were family or friends growing up (Jackson 5, New Edition) or were manufactured with commercial intent to attract teenage girls and their hard-earned babysitting money, their music plays a role in our history.
For the more manufactured boy band, image is everything and the music is mainly pop and on trend. They also tend to have extensively choreographed routines and usually, there’s one shining star in each band that breaks out onto his own…Justin Timberlake, anyone?
Here’s our take at the best boy band songs to cycle to. Let us know if we missed your favorite.
